Savage=The small block Chevy of the gun world.Just picked up a walking/calling 223 Stevens($259)that shot great but still got converted to 204 as I had the barrel laying around.The trigger was lightened to 3.5 lbs and aint bad for a factory trigger.I personaly dont like the accutrigger but have a couple of very adjustable aftermarket triggers.
The tuperware conoe paddles are junk as far as useing them with a bipod but stocks are cheap and available in any form you want!Looking forward to the new offerings but have not had the pleasure of useing one YET.
I like the fact that I can swap barrels out,though to be honest I usualy use the barrel that is on at the time and very seldom switch barrels in the field.
The top unit is a long action 6.5-284 that could also be a 25-06 or 30-06
The middle unit is a single shot in 243 that has never had the barrel off as it shoots the 55s too good to mess with.The prairie dogs know it as <font color="red">red mist </font> !!
The bottom unit has a 223AI barrel on it now but gets switched out quit often with a regular 223 or 204 barrels.
